Set of three surcharges using a red chop. The top left pair of characters read 用 Temporary Use, the right pair read 華 China and the characters in brackets are all 50f surcharges.

There is a further set of 12 values known for this town.

These stamps have been identified by using Volume II of the Stamp Catalogue of China by Shui-Hon Chan and the four booklet guide The Local Overprinted Stamps of Manchuria 1945-7 by Allen D Kerr (published 1978 and now out of print). Both works are essential for anyone delving seriously into this subject.
